Steven Brough

Steven Brough 

Thank you for visiting our website and let me introduce myself, my name is Steven Brough and I am the owner and founder of Clarity Law.

I founded this practice in 2001 after working for a decade before that in other firms with the belief that I could provide clients with the best possible legal advice on traffic matters and the best service clients have ever received from a law firm but at a reasonable cost.  For the past 9 years with Clarity Law I am pleased that we have been able to achieve this.  
 

Steven’s Traffic Law Experience

I have appeared thousands of times since 2001 in courts throughout Queensland assisting clients in all manner of traffic law matters.  There is virtually no aspect of Queensland traffic law that I have not represented clients before the courts in.  I am one of the most experienced traffic lawyers in Queensland.  I am proud of the record of success I have been able to achieve for clients and their families.  I am also very proud of the trust and appreciation all my clients have shown to me.
